carb sync

Hi every body, thank you to all for last reply's.
I got carb adaptors today (I was going to make some but found some for £13 including post so I got some) just been to shop for fish tank pipe and valves as I am going to make my own manometer as with just using pipe with fluid in ( I have seen home made one on goldwingdocs).
I was thinking the other day (scary) were 1977 goldwings made to run on leaded petrol, does it damage valve seats ect running on lead free petrol ?
Also now green neutral light not going out when put in gear, but only goes dim ?

Lead was used as a upper cylinder lubricant,lead free was a term used to describe that the fuel no longer contains lead and it was replaced with a "lead free" additive for the same purpose.
The bike runs either one just fine.
You can extract the neutral safety switch and clean it without pulling the for this topic.theres plenty to read about.
